11 Tiny Dogs with Big, Bold Personalities

Chihuahua: Small and Mighty (and a Little Bitey)

This Mexican breed known for its big ears, short stature and fierce bark, holds the title of world’s smallest dog with a weight of not more than 6 pounds. But not all Chihuahuas are so petite. Some come in larger sizes, making them good choices for families. They are suited to any size home and get their exercise by running around the house. Chihuahuas come in two coat types: short and long. And be warned that some heed the motto: small and mighty but a little bit bitey.
